Jonathan Edwards

How Did A Stealth Protest Song Like “Sunshine” Become A Top 40 Hit For Jonathan Edwards?
Jonathan Edwards has been standing on the stage with his guitar, harmonica rack and high clear voice for 50 years. Today he does it for our invited in studio audience. Although he has a very good new album, Tomorrow’s Child, recorded in Nashville with the likes of Allison Krauss and Vince Gill helping, he is still best known for his early work going back to 1972. His self-titled first album and “Sunshine,” the hit single it contained, defined his style. He’ll tell us the story behind “Sunshine,” play it for us and perform his new music as well.
